While I agree that rsync is excellent, I'm not sure this is the root
of the problem. I've had the same thing when transferring files over
SSH; generally rsync works better though, so I've never gone further
to work out what's happening. I do know, though, that when I used to
use samba for file sharing rather than SSH, samba was considerably
more consistent (it was also faster due to lack of encryption, though
I'm sure there's a way of speeding up SSH too).
